Illinois folks need to start voting for the right folks for their state government, looks like. The state's purt near flat broke as it is...
Seriously doubt that will happen unless something can convince Chicago to vote differently. They control what happens in Springfield.
Of course, St Clair and Madison co's aren't great, either. Costello inherited the Touchette political machine and I am sure whoever is picked to follow him will have the benefit of the political machine. The dead in East St Louis will turn any vote around in these counties. Combine that with the redistricting wars going on which will cost Illinois a few Repub. reps in the US House and I don't think the liberals have anything to worry about.
